    Yes for auto handover you will need the backup connected to your IDRANet 'in parallel' i.e via its own PCU and to the always on spur (if you have a system with an IPD spur management structure). The...

    Marcus,

    Ah, I see. When you say 'set point' do you mean the set point that your cooling/heating is going to be working to or do you mean some fixed value which you have in mind, or some profiled...

    Marcus,

    I'm not an expert on it but as a quick response: I imagine you'd set up your HVAC object as usual and then perhaps connect the zone valve signal to a virtual zone valve. In the API the...

    Well I would imagine that the RS232 or Ethernet ASCII interfaces should be accessible via Cortex API. Probably Ethernet being easiest in the sense of not needing to connect to a serial port.

    Just a note on the 'computer running 24/7':

    I know it is perhaps more than just a semantics issue but all systems have computers running 24/7. The question is when does one call a computing...

    So if you do find that you were getting false motion detects the next step is to see if you can figure out why. If it is a regular occurance then might suggest that a motion sensor is pointing at...

    Do you mean a particular light/s should remain on continuously during the simulation period? If so, then one way might be to uncheck that light's option for inclusion into occupancy simulation and...

    It appears under Structure (perhaps it should go under lights) but you can of course also elect to put it into a favourites category or on the home page itself.

    It depends on how comprehensive a system you have installed and hence how much implicit automation you are making use of in general. I'm guessing from your question that you are maybe not that far...

    As a starting point might be an idea to check the textual history for the lights in question. These will normally have a cause appended to each state change.

    Cortex does make the LEDs follow the state of the object which the relays represent. So you have to have an object connected, such as a generic on/off load or something specialised such as a boiler,...

    When you say test send button works, do you mean you select an e-mail in the Send Options menu, then click on Test button then click on Send Now and Cortex then successfully sends that e-mail?
